Personal Blimp makes its maiden flight
This start-up is based in Western Mass- achusetts. And believe it or not, there really is a powerful business model behind this. Who says Silicon Valley gets all the cool start-ups? This one's two blocks from my house!
As Dan Nachbar the founder and inventor of Sky Yacht said of the maiden voyage of the first Personal Blimp, "For the first time ever, there is a small blimp that can both control its lift (because it uses hot air rather than Helium as a lifting gas) and be easily steered (previous hot air blimps have had very poor steering.)"
